Event description

Description

Professor Steve Petrou's "brain in a dish" and other emerging techologies, are leading the way to better epilepsy diagnosis, treatment and outcomes.

Professor Steve Petrou is head of the Florey's Ion Channels and Human Diseases Laboratory where his team focuses on understanding the pathology of ion channel disorders, in particular epilepsy, using in vitro and in vivo models to reveal opportunities for developing novel therapies. He uses a multidisciplinary approach spanning ion channel biophysics, mouse transgenesis, genetic analysis, computational modeling and in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology.

The lecture will begin promptly at 6.30pm and finish at approximately 7.45pm, including a question and answer session.
